Easter Frittata: Simple, Delicious & Low-CarbPin recipeFollow us 63.5k

I've been working on a few Easter recipes over the last few days. This is the first one of them and more will follow over the next few days.

I love frittatas - it's one of my favourite low-carb meals that is very easy to make. I tend to experiment with new ingredients and this recipe is my absolute favourite! It has all the ingredients I love: Pancetta (aka Italian bacon), goat cheese, asparagus, eggs and a mixture of amazing herbs that give it the right kick!

Ingredients (makes 4 servings)

  • 10 large eggs
  • 20 small asparagus spears (250 g / 8.8 oz)
  • 2 small spring onions (10 g / 0.4 oz)
  • 1 small shallot (20 g / 0.7 oz)
  • 1 large red bell pepper (150 g / 5.3 oz)
  • 1/4 cup heavy whipping cream (60 ml / 2 fl oz)
  • 1 package fresh soft goat cheese or any soft full-fat cheese (150 g / 5.3 oz)
  • 1 package Pancetta or bacon (100 g / 3.5 oz)
  • 2 tbsp fresh parsley or 1 tsp dried
  • 2 tbsp fresh mint or 1 tsp dried
  • 1 tbsp fresh tarragon or 1 tsp dried
  • 2 tbsp ghee or butter
  • sea salt to taste
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 cherry tomato vines (300 g / 10.6 oz) to serve with the frittata

Instructions

  1. First, preheat the oven to 200 °C/ 400 °F. Prepare the asparagus by cutting the woody ends off (250 g of asparagus in our recipe counts after cutting the ends off). Wash and deseed the bell pepper and slice it in small stripes. Peel and finely chop the shallot and spring onion.

  2. Grease a non-stick pan with a tablespoon of butter or ghee and add all the ingredients from the previous step. Season with salt to taste. Cook briefly for about 5 minutes just enough to release the fragrance and set aside.

  3. In a bowl, whisk the eggs, cream and freshly chopped herbs. If you don't have the herbs for this recipe, you can use any herbs you have (e.g. chives, thyme, basil).

  5. Place the cooked vegetables into a baking dish (I used a 25 cm / 10 inch baking dish). Crumble the soft goat cheese equally all over the vegetables and pour the egg mixture over it.

  6. Place it in the oven and cook for about 20 minutes just until the top becomes firm.

  7. Carefully take the dish from the oven and reduce the temperature to about 175 °C/ 350 °F. Lay the Pancetta (or bacon) all over the frittata and place back in the oven for an additional 15-20 minutes. When done, remove from the oven and let it cool down before you start serving.

  8. Meanwhile, prepare the tomatoes. Grease a pan with a tablespoon of ghee (or butter) and keep it on medium heat. The best way to roast tomatoes is to leave them on the vine. This will add extra flavour. Roast shortly for about 5 minutes (don't overcook) and...

I changed the way I ate in 2011, when I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s, an autoimmune disease that affects the thyroid. I had no energy, and I found it more and more difficult to maintain a healthy weight.

That’s when I decided to quit sugar, grains, and processed foods, and to start following a whole-foods-based ketogenic approach to food.

I may sound silly but how long I can store it? I cook only for one and due to making 4 portions, I need to store it somehow. Do you think I can just store it in an Airtight container and use it in next 3 days?

Reply

Hi Ewelina, not at all, I didn't mention this. It will keep in the fridge for up to 4 days.

Hi. Just made the Easter Frittata and it was absolutely delicious. I used Dill and Corianderas the herbs and they were very nice. Loved the roasted tomatoes, I think they really complement ted the dish. Thank you from Alice Springs Australia.🇦🇺

I can't wait to try this one!!  Just bought some asparagus.  Yum

Do you know how many total calories this has?

Reply

This looks great but is there a substitution for the bacon? I don't eat any pork. Thanks!!

Reply

I think you can try beef Spanish chorizo slices (thin cuts). Hope this helps 😊

Reply

I used turkey chorizo as I do not eat pork either.

Reply

Hi, thanks for your recipes. Can I ask, can we substitute the bacon for anything, as I find myself eating a lot of bacon ;) chorizo or anything? Thanks, Jade

Reply

I think you can just skip it or use chorizo, Italian sausage or even parma ham - or maybe add some more caramelised onion for extra taste 😊

Reply

Can I substitute the asparagus with green beans?

Reply

I think you could although I haven't tried that. I would try to pan-roast the beans on a bit of butter and then bake in the oven with the remaining ingredients 😊

Reply

what is full fat cream? is it heavy cream?

Reply

Yes, it's heavy whipping cream (30-40% fat) 😊

Reply

It looks more-ish! Am definitely going to make this. So peckish now

Reply

Thank you, hope you like it! 😊

I have never had goat cheese in a frittata, WOW with the fresh herbs, this recipe explodes with flavor. I'm looking forward to the leftovers!

Reply

Thank you Eileen! Glad you liked it 😊

Just made & eaten this. Very yummy indeed. Enough left for tomorrow

Reply

That's great! Glad you liked it 😊

Reply

If making for one, can this be frozen in portions and reheated?

Reply

Hi Betsy, yes this frittata can also be frozen and reheated.

I love this recipe...I think I will make it but I'm thinking I may tweak it a bit to use a Muffin tin so I can take them to work each day. AND I love Asparagus...

Reply

Thank you Nancy 😊 I agree, egg muffins are great for work!

Reply

portable versions of this sort of food are great.  And the new, smaller capacity silicone muffins trays work a treat!

Reply

They are! 😊 Pesto Egg Muffins

Would you cook the bacon at all before you put it on top? Or is 20 minutes enough time to cook it all the way through?

Reply

It is enough to cook it through but you may want to put the bacon on top from the very beginning (just after you pour the eggs in) if you prefer it more crispy 😊

Reply

I love the bacon on top! Thanks for sharing 😊

Reply

The bacon is the best part 😊

Reply

I'm totally making this for Easter as my hubby loves bacon and goat cheese!

Reply

It's one of the best frittata recipe I've tried and we make it quite often, not just for Easter. I'm sure he'll love it 😊
